Conflict Without Casualties: Stop the Drama While Boosting Safety, Trust and Productivity

Too often, conflict is blamed for our stress, anxiety and hardships. But really, conflict isn’t the problem – it’s how we approach conflict that creates toxic environments. Diversity and differences are the greatest resource we have for innovation and positive change. Those who master compassionate conflict can unlock the potential in conflict and become agents of transformation instead of being drained by the drama. Change how you approach everything from customer service to change management, performance conversations to confronting bullying, injustice and discrimination.

  1. Stop drama from draining, distracting and undermining your efforts.
  2. Turn conflict into a powerful source of innovation, trust, and engagement.
  3. Radically improve how you approach difficult conversations, differences and disagreements.
  4. Dramatically improve workplace relationships, culture and brand.

At a time when your employees and clients are anxious and looking for stability, the principles of Compassionate Accountability can be your foundation. See how NOT to communicate by exploring the ways drama can easily creep in, and learn a proven and effective template for mastering your communication strategy during crisis and beyond.

You will learn how to:

  1. Avoid getting hooked by drama that can erupt during crisis.
  2. Evaluate where previous crisis communication has failed, and why.
  3. Apply a balanced and effective communication template and strategy for any crisis situation.
  4. Show your employees and your community that you care while keeping laser focused on priorities.

Personality Inclusion: The Untapped Secret to Boosting Engagement

Personality is one of the most important dimensions of neurodiversity because it influences how people experience their environment, how they process information, how they communicate, how they are motivated, and how they seek negative attention in distress. Yet very few organizations maximize the potential of personality as an engagement asset. Learn about two common engagement mistakes that well-intentioned organizations make, and see how to correct these mistakes through personality inclusion.

You will learn how to:

  1. Identify how different personality types excel or struggle in common workplace environments.
  2. Make simple, yet effective adaptations to leverage the positive potential of personality diversity.
  3. Transform how you approach performance management, discipline, and engagement.
  4. End the problem of people languishing in their job.

It was a pleasure to have Dr. Regier speak at our IPMA-HR Kansas Chapter meeting. During a year of change and stress, Nate used Zoom to deliver a captivating talk about “How To Communicate With Compassion During Crisis” and our members loved his presentation. One member said “Wish we could have had this information sooner” in a year that’s been very difficult due to COVID-19. Nate was able to reach a “digital” audience and his delivery was personal and fun and informative. Our members felt this was information they could put to immediate use!

Nate was masterful at connecting with the audience, and he displayed an uncommon and authentic confidence with humility. He was powerful at helping us see roadblocks without embarrassment. He was patient and gentle with the skeptics, finally winning them over. And, he was inspiring and encouraging with the timid, who left the training feeling a great deal of empowerment, new skills and hope for leading themselves out of drama.
